How do you pronounce your username?

Postby Nanirourou » Sat Jun 13, 2015 2:29 am

Not that it really matters since no one will be saying usernames out loud anyway, but I'm curious! You must have a reason to have picked the online alias you go by.

My own, Nanirourou, is kind of a play on my name "Natalie Rougeau," last name pronounced "roo-zjoh" (the soft, French j sound). If I were to read my username it out loud it would be "nanny-roo-roo." "Nani" works fine as a nickname though.

What about you?

When I was like 16 years old I met this fellow going by the nickname of Galwyn Yaveth. He was a weird guy that could be found on several chatboxes from metal bands, nobody really liked him. He had a weird backstory and noone really knew anything else about him.

I found him online and asked for a private chat. I don't know exactly what we talked about but he started telling me that he wanted to give me a nickname "Delta" I had to promise to continue helping people and while doing so I did have to do it in the name of Delta. He also gave me his e-mail account. He told me that when I would turn 22 (I'm 24 now) I had to pass the nickname on to somebody else.

I didn't like the name "Delta" though, so I thought like... Hell I just steal his initials! Hence "Yavga" sounded right. Then I could never find the guy again online... He vanished apparantly... I still use the name to this day :)

Pronounced: Jav-Ga

The story behind my username is kinda bland but...
In 2003 (I was 12 by that time) I wanted to join a Pokemon forum but didn't have any idea for a username. I tried entering "Latios" (since he was my favorite at that time) but my finger slipped and I entered a "k" between the i and o... I liked the sound of it so I kept it, even to this day.

Anyway, it's pronounced as it's written La-ti-kos

Oh boy my username sometimes you can find me with -TR or _TR.

First of all, this is and was not my first username. My first, that even Twitter still use, is Totenphal. I was 12 and didn't know how to write Totemphal, so for me it was done with this.

Then I wanted it to use nearly everywhere but couldn't use it so I needed another one. Zunder [This word is used in a German phrase "jemanden Zunder geben" = "to give someone hell"]

I used this in my Skype for instance and some other places.

Then I tried to register in an FPS, but both usernames already exists, so I needed a new one. Because I was 16 *cough not enough for that FPS cough*, I wanted to use a cool name. I wanted to use "Treter" [German for "Kicker"], but I had an typo with an n, so I ended up with Trenter [Shorten "Trent"] or sometimes TrenteR_TR.

The pronounciation is Tren-ter or Tren-ter T-R. :)

I can't really explain this user name. As much as I would love too, I just can't.

Pronounced: Scrub Destroyer.

Mine came about from Perfect Dark. I played multi player with my best friend who ran around in orange Pelagic overalls. Needless to say he was easy to key in on. As every enemy had "Sim" tacked on the end of their name; I did the same.
It was an attempt to hide whilst keeping identity.
Pronunciation.

When I was about 15 years old I created a character that needed a name. I was googling for several fantasy-names until I found Zita, which was the only one that didn't sound overly cliché.
That character eventually grew so close to me that it became my persona, therefor I adapted the name. Most of my closer friends call me this now.

It's pronounced See-Tah, with a soft S instead of the sharp Z at the beginning. (Although I'm not mad at anyone pronouncing it with a Z, since that's how it's written anyway.)

My username came about as a result of my love of reading. The 'Glyph' part of the name was more of young me noticing the word 'glyph' is a part of 'hieroglyph'.

It is pronounced as if you were saying it all at once: Glyph-Reader, no Glyph <pause> Reader. Small difference. ;)

Pronounced how it looks.
Gen-er-sis, so it doesn't sound any different to the correct spelling a lot of the time.

Came from a misspelling of the word "Genesis" that I used as my name in Phantasy Star Online(PSO) many moons ago.
Stated using forums not long after, and I had grown somewhat attached to the name.
Well meaning Wally.

Mine's pretty straightforward, it's just the name "Anna." I say it with the American pronunciation as an American, but I'm not picky. :)
